If you’re going to be in Canberra before 8th October 2017, there are lots of things to keep you busy. Whether you’re planning a holiday or a business trip, squeeze in the time to visit the Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO® Bricks exhibition at the National Museum of Australia. These amazing Lego towers are the work of the guy every little kid wants to be when they grow up. Ryan McNaught lives his dream as Australia’s  only certified LEGO professional. If fact, he’s the only one in the whole Southern Hemisphere.
